    February 1 12:33 AM
  • NorwichScene It really is bad. Listened to it twice and don't like it at all
    May 31 05:06 AM
  • NorwichScene Yes, dissapointed so far too. Don't know if will even go see them in Norwich next month yet
    April 4 02:36 PM
  • DaveyBoy Definitely. I get much more of a Thursday vibe anyway.
    November 6 07:45 PM
  • DaveyBoy It took me a few listens to get used to No Devotion, but it's finally clicking. I think I was expecting more Lostprophets musically.
    November 6 07:43 AM
  • DaveyBoy Nope. On the priority list though.
    October 7 07:57 PM
  • DaveyBoy Officially excited. Genuinely heavy musically... Genuinely melodic vocally.
    September 13 07:05 AM
  • DaveyBoy Yep, on my list to listen to. Actually listening to the not too dissimilar Young Guns as we chat. Its not as good as their previous 2 LPs, but not as bad as everyone made it out to be
    August 8 12:51 AM
  • DaveyBoy Hey stranger. Huge reco for you. Too Close To Touch LP Nerve Endings
    March 25 10:30 PM
  • NorwichScene Yep, it needs some attention so gave it a 5
    September 14 07:57 AM
  • NorwichScene Now doing a review for it, prob get slated but will bring attention to the band
    September 2 11:47 AM
  • NorwichScene 5th listen through... Easy 4 excellent. I've done a soundoff
    September 1 06:35 AM
  • NorwichScene Listened to it twice so far, it's really good. May rise to a 4 soon
    August 31 04:02 PM
  • InFiction Ah, so it is! Yeah, I'm keen to check them out, I've heard good things.
    April 4 10:18 AM
  • InFiction Yeah, I've been meaning to check their album out for a while now. Same label, yeah?
    April 4 12:45 AM
  • InFiction Hey, thanks dude! I'm not entirely sure why, truth be told. Due to the word limit, they're a lot less detailed than my reviews for sputnik, so they might seem out of place. And constantly making a list for people to read them seem excessive, aha.
    April 3 08:18 PM
  • InFiction Of course man, here you go: definitely need to get their EP.
    April 3 07:58 AM
  • InFiction Not yet, man. I had to review their album for work, but I really enjoyed it, so I'm definitely keen to grab their EP!
    April 2 12:27 AM
  • DaveyBoy Ta. Might stream it when its released.
    March 24 08:36 AM
  • DaveyBoy Yeah, it seemed so. Zebraheads sound on the same stage was better, but they are nowhere near as loud and distorted. Very mixed feelings re Green Day. Firstly, they only went about 150 minutes. And of that, a lot of time was wasted with crowd interaction, woh wohs, etc. The middle portion was almost exclusively Dookie and ruled though. Put it this way, its lucky they have so many hits.
    March 4 08:24 AM
  • DaveyBoy AFI were really good I thought. I got mixed vibes with The Story So Far. Playing at one of the smaller stages probably did not help. Difficult to explain, but I dunno if they have fully settled into the band they want to be yet.
    March 3 06:57 AM
  • DaveyBoy Biffy, TSsFar, Alk3, MuteMath, AFI, Zebrahead, Panic, BVBrides, ICall5s, Jimmy and Green Day. I saw Living Colour and Alter Bridge 2 days earlier.
    March 2 11:51 PM
  • DaveyBoy Listened to 3 songs from Ceres at SW. Quite impressed. Good call.
    March 2 07:37 AM
  • DaveyBoy Nope, but I did see earlier today that they had that slot, so will look them up. Who do they sound like?
    February 19 06:58 AM
  • DaveyBoy Living Colour are best described as funk metal. They're black. Think a slightly heavier Chilli Peppers crossed with Rage Against The Machine.
    January 24 05:24 AM
  • DaveyBoy I have always loved Living Colour. Check out my review of their album Vivid. Cult of Personality is probably my favourite song. As in number 1. Ever. Actually, I just checked Canterbury songs on SoundCloud and it looks like Think It Over was the lead single. Its the only one there
    January 24 04:23 AM
  • DaveyBoy I had not actually realised that Satellite was the lead single. Strange choice, if so. Although, if anything, the album does lack that one big single. I think i would have gone with the album opener instead.
    January 24 12:02 AM
  • DaveyBoy I will indeed be at SW. Probably at the Alter Bridge and Living Colour sidewave too, as I desperately want to see the latter, and it is tough to pick what stage and time AJ will fit them into the SW timetable.
    January 23 08:44 PM
  • DaveyBoy On first listen, I like the new Canterbury LP. Its definitely different and I dont know if the slower tracks will grow or the opposite. If I continue to like it, I may do a quick write up. The singers voice is definitely reminding me of Ian Kenny, and that can only be a positive.
    January 23 05:15 PM
  • DaveyBoy DLd Canterbury, so will give it a listen in the next week or so. Never heard of Blitz Kids. They seem to have been around a while. Theyre on the long list.
    January 16 05:48 AM
  • DaveyBoy Bloody hell, I just found out about Kids In Glass Houses new LP 3 months after release, now this. These British bands need to promote new albums better.
    January 16 12:37 AM
  • Storm In A Teacup I don't think so. I will soon
    December 20 12:42 PM
  • NorwichScene Yeah I prefer their older more rock stuff
    September 15 02:48 AM
  • DaveyBoy Not yet. I have listened to all their EPs though, with mixed feelings. LP will be interesting.
    September 3 07:49 AM
  • DaveyBoy Nope. Was going to, but I have Gaslight Anthem on Wednesday night and 2 work nights in a row would have drained my old weary bones.
    May 13 09:15 AM
  • DaveyBoy Excellent. Id say the EP and LP are about on par with each other. One more listen and then I will have a rating for the LP tomorrow.
    April 21 09:54 AM
  • DaveyBoy Im all out of recos at the moment. Yeah, Soundwave was great. Been trying to find the time to do my annual list, so stay tuned.
    March 13 07:50 AM
  • THIEF Dude, I see you gave Woven Material a solid 4. Very nice!
    February 26 11:56 PM
  • DaveyBoy So many clashes, it's not funny. Deaf Havana vs Billy Talent the worst of them for me. I have to first decide whether I want to see Metallica or not, and then work back from there.
    February 13 07:01 AM
  • DaveyBoy Looks like Im missing them at SW. Of the early acts, the 3 I wanted to see are all on at the same time damn it. As Ive seen The Blackout twice before, I will pass this time. They are great fun though. Sean will be in the crowd a lot. Lots of laughs.
    February 13 05:22 AM
  • DaveyBoy Ive given The Blackouts new album a proper few listens now. Its not as bad as what everyone is suggesting, but I can see why many dont like it. On first listen, the cringeworthy parts seemed to overawe the good parts. There also seemed to be no depth to any of the songs either. But a few of the tracks are growers. Its still a step down though and their worst LP. I agree with you that a 3 is the correct rating.
    February 9 07:47 AM
  • THIEF Its all good, theres nothing like the Sputnik community to broaden your music tastes! When I first joined a few years ago, I pretty much only listened to Metalcore and Post-Hardcore. Now.. well you can just check out my Pie haha. Also, Mallory Knox isn't really my thing, but I'll try and give their album a solid chance and listen all the way through. I definitely like the dudes voice, which is something I can't say for a lot of modern post-hardcore bands haha (i.e. Asking Alexandria)
    January 30 04:05 AM
  • THIEF Yeah, I agree. Normally I enjoy great cohesion in albums, but interestingly enough, there is TOO much in Conduit. Also, I feel like I can't enjoy a lot of the songs because they are over too soon.Thanks for the rec, i'll definitely check it out! I've been listening to Evaline's album Woven Material a lot lately. You should check out their song Picking It Up and let me know what you think. I see your a big fan of Post-Hardcore. They are more on the alt-rock side of things but are still great.
    January 29 02:39 AM
  • THIEF I actually just heard Conduit today for the first time! I agree, not as good as WHA. What bothers me is that it had the potential to be as good or better, had they expanded their songs.. Its like every song is a rough sketch of a masterpiece, but they never got around to writing more than 2 verses and a chorus. A lot was left a lot to be desired by the end of the album..
    January 27 02:54 AM
  • NorwichScene He always is. Have a good weekend!
    January 25 03:22 AM
  • NorwichScene Cheers
    January 24 04:53 PM
  • NorwichScene 2nd listen of Mallory Knox. Gets better! Best debut since Young Guns AOKAD
    January 23 03:37 AM
  • NorwichScene Hey, not heard new Blackout yet. Mallory Knox Signals is great
    January 22 03:27 AM
  • DaveyBoy Cant say that I have, but will keep an ear out for it. Ta for the reco.
    January 17 05:55 PM
  • DaveyBoy Deaf Havana are definitely high up on my SW priorities, but until the timetables come out, no band is set in stone this time around. Could be a massive clashfest.
    November 24 09:59 PM
  • DaveyBoy Hmm, Not very favourable tbh. I dont hate the 2 songs and I even like the fun vibe they have got going on. But I don't think they are all that catchy and memorable. How about you.
    November 24 07:54 AM
  • DaveyBoy Yep, heard of them, but not heard them. Seen the bands name doing a lot of hard yards touring over the past year or so. Will give them a listen when I get a chance. Thanks for the reco.
